Copyright of Slides
Under current UK copyright legislation, slides made of artistic works need to have copyright clearance from the artist or anyone holding rights in the work, unless they are made under the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) slide collection licence. This licence allows Library Services to make slides from artistic works in books and journals.
Can new slides be made?
No. The DACS licence held is retrospective and does not allow this.
What conditions apply?
Slides may only be borrowed by staff and students (including collaborative provision courses) of Liverpool John Moores University and used for the educational purposes of the Institution. Slides may be used on or off campus. However, if they are being used off campus then Library Services must be informed and a consent form signed when borrowing items from the library.
Can slides be copied?
No. Slides cannot be copied unless permission is obtained from the rights holders.
